Minister of Lands, Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD) Judith Nabakooba has described the land reforms undertaken in her docket under the Competitiveness and Enterprise Development Project (CEDP) over the last decade as necessary and timely.
Key among reforms undertaken at the land ministry over the past decade is the digitisation of land records through the design, installation, piloting and roll out of the National Land Information System (NLIS).
The push to digitize and automate the lengthy, complex, process and procedures that govern land registration in Uganda is part of the World Bank-funded Competitiveness and Enterprise Development Project (CEDP) that the lands ministry is part of.
